Drug Toxicity Signature Generation Center

The Drug Toxicity Signature Generation Center is a NIH-funded Systems Pharmacology research center at the Icahn School of Medicine. The proteomics experiments for the center are conducted at the Center for Advanced Proteomics, Rutgers-New Jersey Medical School. DToxS is part of the LINCS consortium of centers. LINCS (Library of Integrated Network-Based Cellular Signatures) is a program supported by the NIH Common Fund.

Many Experimental protocols for systems biology research are available here:
